Across America and around the world, many are praying for President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump as the battle COVID-19. My prayers are added, with the hope that God will redeem us all from the deadly plague.

As one who has been blessed to pray for and with the Trump administration, I'm honored to release my memoirs about the journey at this time.

For four years, I've been answering a question that has become a joy and a burden; depending on who's asking. Why Trump? In my latest memoir, I share a lesson I learned at the feet of my granddaddy Martin Luther King, Sr. who was affectionately known to the world as "Daddy King" to explain the often asked question, "Why do you support Donald Trump?"

In 1960, Granddaddy made a difficult decision to leave his loyalty to his Baptist Faith and the Republican Party to vote for John Kennedy, a Catholic Democrat. Granddaddy voted for JFK who helped to rescue Uncle MLK from danger.

During the 2016 presidential race Donald John Trump was one of my top five candidate preferences. In 2020 it is easy for me to answer the question, "Why Trump?" Over the last four years, I have had a front row seat watching President Trump fight for religious liberties not only here in America, but around the globe. I have watched him champion the rights of the unborn. I have watched him advance opportunities in Black America.

With POTUS I've taken a page from my Granddaddy's journal. I've put faith and expediency over church denomination and politics. Donald J. Trump is my president. I've got my vote, and my prayers. Both are in favor of President Trump and his "promises made and promises kept."

Again, let's pray for healing and better days ahead.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father's church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read Dr. Alveda C.
